    1. First do a back up.

    2. Hold down the power key (the one on top next to the antenna.)

    3. While holding it down press the reset button on the back of the phone with a paper clip. Do not release the power button until the Palm logo appears.

    4. When the Palm logo appears release the power button.

    5. Press up on the 5-way pad to erase all dat.

    Remember everything on your Treo will be gone. Your unit will look as if you just took it from the box.

    however, if you have a software issue and you backup before you hard reset, when you sync again, that bad software will come back.

    I would recommend doing the following:

    1. make a copy of your handspring backup folder on the pc you sync with
    2. delete everything out of the handspring backup folder (not the copied one)
    - this way when you hard reset, the old stuff will not resync
    3. hard reset your treo
    4. install uninstall manager
    4. install the apps that you want to run one by one
